My wife and I were in town visiting relatives. A few years ago I had a fantastic experience at Schlafly so I was ready for a return visit.

We stopped by on Saturday, June 25 at about 1:30 PM. We were seated outdoors in the patio area. There were two waitresses. It became clear we drew the short straw for waitresses as the other waitress gave far more attention to her two tables than our waitress gave to her two tables.

I ordered jagerschnitzel. Unfortunately, it was very overcooked. I told the waitress about it. She said she would check with the cook. In the meantime, I tried to figure out what could have gone so wrong with my meal. When she returned, I asked what she found out from the cook. She only looked at me so I proceeded to tell her what I thought happened. I had two pieces of jagerschnitzel which overlapped on the plate when served. The top piece was very overcooked. The bottom piece was also overcooked but the portion which was covered by the top piece was not quite as bad. I surmised my dinner had spent a very extended amount of time under a heat lamp. Given how slow the service was, this seemed plausible.

Looking back at this, I wish I had asked to see a manager but instead, we just paid and left. Later, I was talking to my niece's husband and he said he never goes to Schlafly anymore because it has gone downhill. If only I had talked to him sooner we would have gone someplace else too.

I understand that it is tough to get enough capable people to staff a restaurant. I am willing to wait as long as what I get is worth the wait. Yesterday, it was not. Took forever for someone to take our order. Waited even longer to get our food. What should have been hot; was not. What should have been cold; was not. My husband and I ordered the meat and cheese tray for our lunch. The cheese was dry and hard -- and was not supposed to be. This is not the first time we have been disappointed; but, I can assure you that it will be the last time.

We were just out for a drive while visiting St. Louis and found the Schlafly Bottleworks. They will give you a free “shot” of a beer to make sure you like it before ordering a full size. I tried the Coffee Stout which was amazing. Nice atmosphere. I think they are trying too hard with their recipe for their beer cheese soup. Too many ingredients. Beer cheese soup should be simple. We will definitely visit again.

This review isn't about the brewery tour or restaurant but the Stout Bout 12 pack stout sampler.
The stout has kind of a hoppy, bitter taste and it is not as thick as stout usually tends to be.
The berry brunch had very little berry flavor along with all the other flavors. They all just tasted kind of bland, disappointing for stout beer because it all sounded good.

So disappointed!! Everything we asked for?? They were out of? Then my husband had placed his order, a reubin ?? The guy comes back oh sorry we don’t have the meat? We can substitute with Turkey 😳, not sure what was going on. Then throughout the meal , he fills my husbands drink, 4 times & brings him a new tea?? Does not touch my glass at all?? So then he brings the ticket:). He starts to hand it to my husband 😱, little to his surprise, I always pay? Just what we have come accustomed to?? I always have my purse right there?? Amazing he started being very friendly 😂🤣, maybe he should have been like this before?? I used to work as a waitress, & I understand that it can be your livelihood, so he should have been thinking of that before rather than being an A_ _!!,
I still gave him 10%, & a little note letting him know what he had done, & women do pay the bills? Maybe he should have thought of that.
We have never had bad food or bad service there, & could not believe how bad this was?? To me, this was just laziness.. u can’t blame everything on Covid🤷‍♀️..
next time do better..

Nice place - good food - friendly staff. I forgot a look for my Yeti and they let me park it inside so I wouldn't worry about it!

Had pumpkin ale, oatmeal stout, merry berry and Kolsh to drink. The food was also very good, had cheese and ham platter. Went there twice as it was a good place to go, quite busy and the drinks were great.

Would love to go here on my own time and sample the many delicious looking local brews but alas not during work hours of course. Went here for lunch with colleagues and we all had great meals - diverse menu items and everything was very fresh and tasty. Special was buffalo chicken and it was perfect.

Really pleasant casual dining experience. Easy parking. Nice atmosphere both inside and outside. We ate under the huge permanent tent on the outside patio and found it wonderful. Outstanding beer selections (it is a brewery after all). Full bar options. Upscale bar menu. The food was great. Highly recommend the wings and the hot ham and cheese on the pretzel bun. Service was average. We will return.

Brewery Tour, History Lesson and Tasting - great time with friends and. free samples. Really enjoyed the time there. The tour was about an hour and a half. Never dull.
